What You Can Expect

Santiago Shore Excursion: Post-Cruise City Tour with Hotel or Airport Drop-Off

Plaza de Armas

After your cruise docks at the Port of Valparaiso, meet your guide and head out on the 2.5-hour drive to Santiago for your group sightseeing tour. Pass through Santiago's civic center to see top attractions of historical and architectural importance such as the cathedral at the Plaza de Armas, Santiago’s central square, and the 18th-century Moneda Palace, built in neoclassical style. You’ll see the Museum of National History and the Central Post Office as your guide offers commentary along the way.

Next, go through Parque Forestal, a lovely urban park planted with nearly 2,000 trees, and continue to the bohemian district of Bellavista to climb Santa Lucia Hill (Cerro Santa Lucía). At the top, enjoy the staircases, fountains and fantastic views of Santiago with the Andes mountains in the background.

Then, visit the handicraft village of Los Graneros del Alba to admire its fine selection of items such as jewelry, ceramics and clothing – all made by resident artists.

After the tour, your guide will pick you up at the Port of Valparaiso and drop you off at the Santiago airport or select downtown Santiago hotels.
